Giovanni serenades Strictly partner Rose after Maura split

It's definitely over.

They may only literally just split up but it seems that Maura Higgins' Strictly ex Giovanni Pernice is already moving on.


The pro dancer has been "serenading" Rose Ayling-Ellis only a day after the pair took down every trace of each other from their social media accounts.

With Maura said to be devastated by the breakup, Giovanni seems to be taking it a lot better than expected as he took to a rose-covered piano to serenade EastEnders star, his Strictly partner.

But while he tried to impress her with his skills, Rose was quick to remind him that she's deaf and couldn't hear a note of it.


In another one of his Instagram stories, the pair decided to try to drink out of their glasses without using their hands.

Sparking rumours that they aren't together anymore, Maura deleted any trace left of him off her Instagram, and she isn't getting a look in on his page either.

The Love Island star and her Strictly Come Dancing boyfriend made things official only a matter of months ago and after their social media detox, fans are convinced the romance is over.

And to confirm their suspicions, even more, a source told The Sun: "It's all over for now. Maura's absolutely devastated, it appears the Strictly curse has struck again.


"Pals are hoping that they can patch things up. But only time will tell whether they'll work things out as Giovanni is so busy.

"He's been focusing on Strictly, training his celeb partner Rose 24/7, and they've become really good friends. He's even been learning sign language from Rose, showing it off on social media."

Dating since June, the pair were also set to move in with each other this month, but after all of this, that's looking less likely.
